Our beloved mother, sister, and friend passed away surrounded by her family at her home on Wednesday Sept 23, 2020
Born Oct 6, 1946 to William (Bill) and June Bernards in Salt Lake City, Jan graduated from Olympus High School in 1964, and earned her associates degree in business at the LDS Business College. She married Larry Sisneros in 1967, later divorced.
Mom was a hard worker, very organized, had excellent problem solving skills, and strived for perfection in her work. She held various administrative positions, and was very good at shorthand and dictation transcription, but her longest and most favorite job was working at ZCMI/Macy's, where she worked until she retired.
She was quiet, reserved, and friendly; at times showing her sassy sense of humor. Most of all she was loving, caring, and loved to play cards and games with her friends and family. She treasured the time she spent with her kids, grandkids, and great-grandkids, and loved to watch them play sports, perform in concerts, and other activities.
Jan loved traveling, especially anywhere she could put her toes in the warm sand on the beach; camping, riding horses, and playing pickleball. She also loved watching sports, especially the Jazz, the Utes, and the Rockies.
She will be dearly missed and is survived by her brother Barry Bernards (Celeste), sister Jillyn B Jones; children S Todd Sisneros (Tiffany), Angela Denos (Kris), Ryan Sisneros (Lisa); and 11 grandkids and 2 great grandkids. Preceded in death by parents William (Bill) and June Bernards; brother Charles (Chic) Bernards.
We will be forever grateful for such a loving, beautiful mother and the knowledge that families are forever.
Graveside service will be held Thursday, Oct 1 at 3:00 p.m. Interment will be at Memorial Holiday Cottonwood Cemetery, 4900 S. Memory Lane, Holladay.
In lieu of flowers, Mom would love a donation to the UDSF on their website at udsf.org, in honor of her youngest grandson Parker who is a member of the Down Syndrome community.

Such a good friend. I was sorry to see Macy’s close. Jan always helped me and my 97 year old mother find a new blouse or skirt. Loved this old high school

Sending sympathy and love to Angee, Todd, Ryan, Jill and Barry & Celeste - and her grandchildren and great grands. I'm sure you'll miss her dearly, as I will. We're blessed to have had such a beautiful, loving friend, inside and out to bless our lives. May you be comforted in the days and years ahead by your many fond and treasured memories. We planned a horseback ride in heaven, and I'm sure we'll do that. I loved her thoughtful cards, newsy texts, and our good telephone conversations. You can have peace in your heart for how you cared for her in her final days. So glad she's no longer suffering. Our ties to heaven are stronger - as we send those so dear on ahead. Our love and prayers are with you now. [Sheila (Probst) & Kerry Siggard (I'm Aunt Rose's youngest daughter. Rose & Bill were siblings who loved each other. Good memories.]

We have lost a loving lady and now she is in the arms of her father in Heaven. She will be missed dearly. I am so grateful for the opportunity to share some of her life as she helped make me a better person.

Dear Todd, Angie and Ryan,
I have great memories of some fun trips and visits with your family when we were all little, and I remember your mom having a great laugh! Many years later I would see her at ZCMI and Macy's - and she was always quick to give me a hug and ask how my family was doing.

I will miss Jan like a sister. We've been friends since 1966. We've lived near each other several times over the years. Jan's mom June taught us to play bridge and Jan and I have been in the same bridge group since 1976. We've played bonko for many years together. We spoke about every third day and I don't know what I'll do when I try to call and she doesn't answer. We've been on at least two trips to Mexico together and trips to St. George and Kanab to visit her parents. Our sons dirt biked together when we lived in Sandy. We shared secrets, triumphs, sorrows and everything in between. This void will not and cannot be filled for me! Love You Jan!!

Jan, as I knew her, was hard working and a pleasure to work with in Macy's as I was the customer. Her son married into a great family and all became supportive and loving friends. Jan was a gentle, loving lady.
